Seleucid Phalangites

These figures were relatively easy to paint. I have some Newline Carthaginian Pikemen that I am going to use as Hellenistic Pikemen as well as Macedonian Pikemen. By Newline Designs. This is the last of my photos for now. I am currently working on some Napleonic Austrian and I will take more photos as soon as possible.

Tarantine Cavalry

Skirmish cavalry in the Tarantine fasion. Figures by Newline Designs.

Alexander's Light Infantry

One of the poses from Hat's Alexander's Light troops. I liked how the GW mud wash worked on these figures. Click for full size.

Hellenistic Thureophoroi

Very versitile figures for Hellenistic armies. I also have a unit with hoplon shields in the works.

Seleucid Cataphracts

These were done quite a while ago now. Some of the first Newline figures I painted up and converted me over to metal figures.

African Heavy Infantry

Libyan Heavy Infantry in Carthaginian service, using one pose from Newline Designs' African close order foot. Instead of using the Hoplite shield provided I decided to use the Early Roman Hoplite shield, for the embossed shield design. The fourth picture down is the first unit of these figures I attempted and have a slightly darker paint scheme.

African Elephants

Elephants by Newline Design. I have some more Carthaginian elephants with towers and Macedonian and Successor elephants. These elephants were fairly simple to paint and assemble I found.

Third Unit of Veterans

This is the third unit of African Veterans I have finished so far. The plan is to have another unit in this pose, shield and colour scheme. I previously mentioned the Units of Veterans with Hoplite shields which will consist of two units one of each pose. The future Immitation Legionarries I am planning will consist of four units with swords that will be given Greek style Thureos shields.

Second Unit of African Veterans

As mentioned in the previous post here is the second unit of Libyan Veterans.

Hannibal's African Veterans

This is the first unit of Libyan Veterans with captured Roman arms by Newline Designs. I really like these figures and ordered quite a lot. I intend to paint units with different shields and will have far too many veterans than any army list would permit. I am currently working on a couple of units of veterans with Greek style Hoplite shields, and in the future will give a unit some spanish Scutum shields. Another future project using these figures will be to create Hellenistic Immitation Legions such as the Seleucid Silvershields equiped in the Roman Manner.

Hannibal, Scourge of Rome. Depicted here in 20mm, figure by Newline Designs.

First Post: Reveille

This blog is a personal showcase of my painted miniatures. I collect 1/72 & 20mm figures and I am interested in most historical eras particularly ancients. This blog is also here to encourage and keep myself focused on completing the mountains of lead and plastic I have stored away. I hope you enjoy the blog.
